xMule crashes very often, tried to compile -> error

here is my problem: i used xMule, installed via synaptic. after an upgrade it went crazy, and crashes, with this log:

[0] xmule(_ZN9CxmuleApp16OnFatalExceptionEv+0x46) [0x8219184]

[24] /lib/ [0x4088cdc6]
[25] xmule(_ZN18wxBaseArrayPtrVoidD2Ev+0x3d) [0x80b9861]

I know, that this forum is not xmule's own, but at least you react to problems.
After this error, i decided to download and compile from source. it went well, until te end, when this occured (tried to complike 1.8.2b, 1.8.0):

Compiling wx/xrc/xmlres.cpp...
Compiling wx/xrc/xmlrsall.cpp...

make[1]: *** [AddFriend.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/balu/linux/kitomorit/xmule-1.8.0/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I fear, that this problem is not specially related to xMule itself, but to my system's problems.
I use debian, sarge with kernel 2.4.25 (selfcompiled roud: )

any help would be grate

Shot in the dark - check if there are any dev packages for glib and install them.

General: I tried xmule,amule and emule (with wine) and they all crash left and right.The only things that worked for me with edonkey/overnet where mldonkey and the official overnet client.

They are all unstable. Same problem here... What fixed was actually using an older version of xmule. xmule- is the only one that worked for me without sudden crashes...

Install this and this. Then install xmule ( If you get any dependency error, simply force the rpm to install:

rpm -i xmule-1.4.0-1.i386.rpm --nodeps
Hopefully, it will work

EDIT: Here was I having the same problem once:
posting it here for reference

For anyone having the same problem compiling, or if the original poster is still having the same problem:

Look *closely* at the ./configure output. I was having the exact same problem and found that ./configure seemed to work just fine, but when I looked at the output "pkg-config" was missing, meaning it won't find the necessary libraries during the compile even if you have them. I installed pkgconfig, reconfigured, recompiled, done.

My advice will get it to compile correctly. Actually running it without sudden crashes is another topic. Sigh, still have no reliable P2P app. mldonkey locks up KDE solid and disables eth0 for some reason. What does a guy have to do to get file sharing?

well, actually i had that pkgconfig installed. but the actual version i could get with apt-get worked for a week, without any crash. i am now compiling the very fresh one, the 1.8.4, but it ends again with the same failure:
mfc.h:52:18: glib.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [AddFriend.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/balu/linux/kitomorit/xmule-1.8.4/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

as far as i know, there is no depedency problem with my glib.
maybe it is because the sarge is unstable?

well, such is the c'est la vie.

thank all of you for help!


digime: yes, i absolutely agree dcgui-qt sucks as well. the windos version of dc is much more user friendly. I do not understand, why one cannot simply make an interpretation of it for linux. however i know i could't make it, but there are much more professionals than i ever be.
